Notes and observations:

According to Bourgeois et al (2001, 2002), 'Early St Ann' is an improved quality, early maturing satsuma that ripens in early September to mid October (in Louisiana). Fruits are said to be larger, higher quality, and the trees higher yielding than 'Early Armstrong' satsuma. More detailed information is available in Bourgeois et al (2001, 2002), link below.
